Chinese Christian Union Church, 1950 (founded in 1903)

The CCUC was founded in 1903 by missionaries and converts from the Presbyterian, Congregationalist, and Baptist churches.  First located in the Loop Chinatown on Clark Street, the church followed its worshipers as they moved to the new South Side Chinatown after 1912.  In 1950 ground was broken at the corner of 23rd St and Wentworth Ave for the construction of the present church building.  It has remained one of Chinatown’s most important religious and social centers ever since.
